Microsoft is making it easier for Band 2 owners to add new tiles to their wearable. You can these tiles from the Tile Gallery. It's like a separate app store for the Microsoft Band 2. Getting there might not be very obvious for new users so we'll show you how to do it. There are not that many tiles available yet, but we expect to see more soon.
- On your phone, open the Microsoft Health app.
- Tap the hamburger menu and then select Manage tiles.
- Scroll all the way down and tap Go to gallery
- Check what's available and choose which tiles to download

We look forward to seeing more tiles here, but we already see one major problem. There seems to be a limit of how many tiles can fit on the Microsoft Band 2. That number is currently 13. Trying to go over that limit gives you an error message. We wonder if Microsoft will lift that limit in the future.
